Love Making, Lichtenstein, and the Allure of an Eco-Friendly Freckles Canister


In our bedroom sits one of my favorite hand-painted, upcycled, decoupage creations: my "Paulie's Confession" canister; which is actually currently for sale in my Etsy shop. As you may notice in this picture, I have a very simple Roy Lichtenstein-influenced decorative tablescape displayed here where I feature a very informative, erotic book called "The Guide to Getting It On" by Paul Joannides. Boy, is this book jam-packed full of information; this has got to be the most extensive book about lovemaking...talk about having a book that you can't put down! ;-)

The photo above displays one of the many functions of a one-of-a-kind hand-painted, upcycyled decoupage canisters by myself "Eco-Friendly Freckles"; I am currently using this canister to store some of my candle sticks...it serves a good purpose for storage and it has artsy elegance!


If you would like to view this entire canister "Paulie's Confession" and read its story and can check out its listing here:
